Antique Heddle Pulleys
.
Used on the traditional narrow-band loom, heddle pulleys are functional objects used to ease the movements of the heddles while separating the warp threads and allowing the shuttle to seamlessly pass through the layers of thread.
.
Like many other carved objects used in everyday activities, these pulleys were often embellished for the weaver’s delight.
.
Scholars have suggested that the prominent display of pulleys, hanging over the weaver’s loom in the public place, afforded artists their best opportunity to showcase their carving skills, in the hope to attract commissions for figures and masks.
.
These figurative pulleys with carvings demonstrate the efforts put by artists into beautifying the simplest functional object.
